It is reported that more than 20 people involved in the suffering involved about 5 million yuan in funds. The Sham Shui Po Police District Squad followed up the case and arrested a female clerk. She claimed that her boss had gone to the Mainland to handle bank account matters.
At 1 pm today (16th), a citizen reported that after remittance at a money changer in Beihe Street, Sham Shui Po, he had not received the relevant money and suspected that the other party was fraudulent. Police officers received a report to the scene to investigate, and a group of citizens gathered outside the store. Some people shouted the slogan "There are remittances and remittances", demanding "backwater." Later, the money changer shop closed its business. The police initially listed the case as a dispute, but after further investigation, the case was reclassified as fraud. More than 20 citizens collectively reported to the Sham Shui Po Police Station.
The bitter owner Li Tai said that his son went to work in Shanghai every week, but due to the new crown pneumonia epidemic, he returned to Hong Kong from the mainland to undergo quarantine on the 14th. He decided to rent a hotel to stay in Shanghai for a long time. However, the current RMB is in short supply, and there is not enough RMB in the money changer. His son failed to exchange 100,000 RMB in one go and brought it back to the Mainland. He was asked to come to the money changer to assist in remittance.
On the morning of the 5th of this month, Mrs. Li went to the exchange office for the first time to remit 30,000 yuan, and arrived at the account that night. Last Friday (13th), she went to the money exchange shop for the second time to remit 70,000 yuan. The boss claimed that she would arrive soon, but she had n’t seen the account for a long time. She called and asked, and the other party pushed again. For a moment, it refers to the shortage of RMB, and then there are millions of deductions in its mainland bank accounts, each time the excuse is different. She estimated that the chance of being deceived was huge, so she sought the assistance of a district councilor.
At 11 o'clock this morning, Li Tai, accompanied by the district councilor, went to the money exchange shop to request a refund. It was found that there were 30 to 40 people who could not receive the money after remittance except her. Li Taizhi pointed out that she lives in Chaiwan, Hong Kong Island. She has to travel to a money exchange shop to remit money, mainly because of her son ’s high exchange rate, plus more than 10 years of operation, and a branch nearby. It still happened, and an estimated 70,000 yuan remittance was frozen.
Mrs. Li also revealed that the biggest sufferer was a Shanghai woman who had remitted 4 million yuan in the Mainland to buy property in Hong Kong. She was currently unable to get any money and did not bring remittance documents. She did not know how to do so, but could only register information with the police. Another lady took the lead in reporting the case because she did not receive the money of RMB 400,000. There is also a construction worker who remits RMB 400,000 to his elder brother to buy a house. He is very worried that he will not get his hard-earned money back. Therefore, she estimates that the total amount involved is nearly RMB 10 million.
Ms. Sui Yan said that she paid 20,000 Hong Kong dollars to the money changer shop to return to the mainland to do homework on Friday (13th), but her family has not received the money. She has visited the money changer shop many times to ask if there is a problem. Whether you can get the money back. Ms. Li said that she remitted 60,000 yuan back to the mainland last Thursday (the 12th). After receiving the news today, she arrived to understand the situation. Another lady pointed out that because she did not receive the payment for a long time after the remittance, she asked the money exchange shop to "backwater" and successfully recovered more than 300,000 Hong Kong dollars.
